Local environmental groups conducting climate change questionnaire


The Newport chapter of Citizens’ Climate Lobby (CCL) and 350 Oregon Central Coast are seeking public input from Lincoln County residents to help the local organizations craft useful direction to address the pressing issue of climate change at the state and local level. In order to boost the number of responses, the organizations are offering four $25 drawings for the following geographic locations:

Lincoln City (one $25 drawing), Newport (one $25 drawing), and other Lincoln County areas (two $25 drawings).

The 32 questions cover a wide range of topics including:

  • zip code of the resident;
  • are humans affecting the climate;
  • do you trust the government or industry to address climate change;
  • what steps should government and industry take to reduction carbon pollution;
  • what were the reasons for the failure of the climate bill to pass the Oregon State Legislature;
  • what would entice you to buy an electric vehicle;
  • how is the Oregon central coast affected by climate change.

Prize drawings will be held Oct. 31. All of the questions must be answered to be eligible for the drawing.

The questionnaire can be found online at www.surveymonkey.com/r/YK2ZXTX. The survey takes approximately 14 minutes to fill out. Individuals are allowed to only answer the questionnaire one time.

Citizens’ Climate Lobby is a nonprofit, non-partisan, grassroots advocacy organization focused on national policies to address climate change, and 350 Oregon Central Coast, an affiliate of the international 350.org, encourages local citizens to become active on climate issues. Both local groups hold meetings to inform the public. The next public meeting will at 6 p.m. on Sept. 25 at the Driftwood Public Library in Lincoln City.
